10:27pm
eyes of the touchdown, doesn't he? he breaks a couple of tackles from 14 yards out. 17-0. folks, this is against one of the league's top defenses. the defense dominated. especially smith who brought down jason campbell. 5.5 times sacking the chicago quarterback and now leads the nfl. he simply is just brilliant in prime time. look at them buying time, putting it on the money. touchdown 49ers. crabtree, they went 32-7. warriors and dallas under a minute left hitting the jump shot. and again we'll go to overtime. less than a minute in. it's tied. he drops it off for the lay up. warriors take a 101-91 lead as they win 105-99. and that is the subplot to this ford story tonight. granted that alex smith is still injured. but you have a quarterback controversy. >> yeah, you do. he is fast and big and he could
10:28pm
